Need help building budget gaming pc

Hey guys I need help building a cheap pc. I only have 300 dollars right now as I am a university student and I want to build a cheap gaming pc. I saw this tutorial on YouTube ( to build a pc for 400 dollars with a:

AMD Athlon X4 750K Processor
XFX Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition Graphics Card
4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM
500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue Hard Drive
NZXT Source 210 Case
430W Corsair CX430 Power Supply

I want to use the 300 dollars I have right now to buy all the parts except the graphics card which I will buy later and I was just wondering if you guys could help me find a better deal for 300 dollars. Also, does the motherboard come with an onboard graphics card? so that I can use the pc without having to buy a graphics card? I'm a complete noob at building pcs so some help would be appreciated.
